Attend IDC 2020

We have packed a whole lot of content into a single 24-hour window of time.


Purchasing a ticket to IDC 2020 provides you access to this unique virtual experience and top-tier content. Don't miss this opportunity to learn from, and interact with, some of the leading minds in our profession. Events like this are where you make connections that last a lifetime and change your perception of what's possible.


Why does it cost money to virtually attend IDC 2020? Great question. Putting together a high-quality event takes considerable preparation and resources. This is true of both in-person and virtual events. The IDC team (made up of volunteers and paid staff) has been working on this event for nearly a year leading up to now. Proceeds generated by this event go towards current and future IDSA programming as well as off-setting costs associated with this virtual event. We are endlessly grateful for your support!

This year, you have the option to add on a small, tax-deductible donation to support The Design Foundation, a 501(c)(3) non-profit aimed at providing educational opportunities for the advancement of the industrial design profession, including free IDC registration to underrepresented and economically disadvantaged individuals. You can make this donation during the checkout process.

As always, IDSA members receive discounted rates for this and all of our other events throughout the year. Consider joining today.





This full rate covers the cost of admission for you, plus helps to cover the cost of subsidized rates for students.




A discounted rate offered to current IDSA members (Professional and Young Professional) as a benefit of membership.




Offered at a deeply discounted rate to provide access for our emerging design community and support their transition into the field of professional practice.
